10 Sculptures Made of Butter (it is State Fair Season).

The Illinois State fair promised their butter cow sculpture will be “something unique, special and unlike anything that’s been done at the State Fair before”. It’s a display of a cow and Abraham Lincoln. Their butter cow cam isn’t working.

You Say Tomato, I Say Agricultural Disaster, Dan Barber of Blue Hill writes about the tomato blight in the northeast. “According to plant pathologists, this killer round of blight began with a widespread infiltration of the disease in tomato starter plants. Large retailers like Home Depot, Kmart, Lowe’s and Wal-Mart bought starter plants from industrial breeding operations in the South and distributed them throughout the Northeast.”

Is there a political meaning to the beer summit having BLUE moon and RED Stripe?

CORRECTION: Prof. Gates must have decided the political and cultural implications of a Red Stripe would have torn the country asunder, and decided to have a Sam Adams Light.

Ciao, chow James Ward

February 27th, 2009 · Comments Off

James Ward, the colorful food reporter for ABC News here in Chicago passed away yesterday.

I had the pleasure of working with James on a travel magazine and some other projects years ago, and once even wound up eating dinner with him in footage of a St. Patty’s Day report (he recruited me off a barstool when he walked in a pub and recognized me).

His Bread & Circuses reports were fun fare, but I don’t think the format and the audience really let him express the range of local dining possibilities nor the true brashness of his opinions. I relished the short times I got to talk food with him, when I could get some of his more serious knowledge of food and dining around.

He was always articulately professional, while at the same time always a truly unique character, and a whole lot of fun.
